community, as well as education. when we look at thriving cities like atlanta, washington, d.c., chicago -- i won't use detroit because that is a different situation. but really my rant does have a point. my point is that we really need to get serious about this outmigration. task forces have said it and there is only so much government can do and we really need to begin to hold our private partners accessible. if you are truly look to recruel talented african-americans to come and live in this city, to work for our corporations, to establish businesses then we need to go and speak to them where they are. thank you. >> thank you. supervisor olague? >> yes, i just wanted to thank supervisor cohen for her comments. because we don't talk about inmigration enough and then sometimes when we have talked about the local hiring around construction, i wonder how do we make sure some that some of those folks from the community, who have been displaced or who are part of the outmigration, how can they access some of those jobs? so i think there are more conversations that we need to have

education. this measure would get san francisco city government into the business of making home loans. this is part of what brought on the economic crisis at the federal level, fannie mae and freddie mac giving out home loans to people who couldn't afford to buy and later had their houses foreclosed. we don't know what's going to happen in the housing market for the next 30 years. i think it's foolish to set aside increasing set amounts of money for the next 3 decades when we know right now that there's thousands of people living on the streets. why not just build as many affordable units now as possible and do that by getting government out of the way with all its red tape and regulations and taxes and union work rules that increase the cost of housing. that would be a better way to get affordable housing, not bringing back this redevelopment agency with its legacy of driving african americans out of the fillmore and they had slated more than half the bay area for redevelopment before they were shut down. >> anything you'd like to add, peter? >> there's a number of assertions from my

school, getting that high score diploma as they first finish, education or a tool or trade. and i think that it is a little soon, to look at the benefits, but the summer jobs program, we are having young people listen to the chief and come to the summer jobs program and very positive motivated and helping about college. a lot of wilderness programs where we were taking them backpacking. it is always about the children and starting young and getting them motivated and comfortable with talking with the police. our current statistics they are still pretty steady compared to the last report that the chief gave you. we are at 52 with a homicide, although i did mention the one that will be counted on the next statistical report. so there is a 21 percent change in homicides, but the other part one violent crimes we are actually again... and property crimes are again, up 7 percent. we are still... part two of the property crimes. we are trying to get a handle on those. and there... there is still, you know, plans in the police department looking at property crimes, working with the commun

and finds a marijuana plant, and out of educational interest brings it home to see how it's going to grow. that person has not committed misconduct in relation to the duties of their office, but a teacher on a different set of facts, who's involved in more serious drug offenses, and who has more contact with youth and a more corrupting influence, that person's conduct does relate more to the duties of their office. so to bring sort of my answer back around, it is a fact-specific inquiry. it's an inquiry that you can't always predict the outcome of before you've seen the evidence and the facts of the case, what exactly the misconduct was, what exactly the duties are. the fact doesn't make it too vague to apply, it makes it a more nimble -- to find official misconduct where it exists and exempt misconduct is purely private and not official when the duties are not implicated. >> president chiu: you're suggesting we should think about fact specific situations where a public official has charter section 15.105(e) refers to conduct that falls below the standards of decency impliedly req
